Flax Engine Documentation

Flax Engine Docs

Welcome to the Flax documentation repository. This repository contains all the source files for the Flax documentation (https://docs.flaxengine.com/). Anyone is welcome to contribute!


We use DocFX tool for building and hosting documentation online. It supports markdown style files (.md) as it's very standardized and popular format. Also writing technical documentation using markdown style is easy and efficient.

To edit docs we recommend you to use tools such as Haroopad or Visual Code.

Building and Testing

Documentation can be builded and hosted on both Linux and Windows. DocFx can run on .Net or Mono. By default site is hosted on localhost:8080 but this can be easily configured.


  • Download repository (or clone with git clone https://github.com/FlaxEngine/FlaxDocs.git)
  • Call call build_manual.bat to build the Manual or build_all.bat to build whole documentation (with API) but it will take more time to finish
  • Call run_local_website.bat to preview the site


  • Install Mono
  • Clone repository (git clone https://github.com/FlaxEngine/FlaxDocs.git)
  • Call chmod +x docs.sh. It will modify permissions for the script docs.sh to allow to execute it
  • Call ./docs.sh rebuild
